Consul is not starting when https port is set to 443


My consul cluster is not starting when I set the https port to 443.
If I change the port to 8501, it is working fine.

Why ?

what user are you running this as?

as you are non-root, probably you can't bind to ports < 1024

With the command:

setcap 'cap_net_bind_service=+ep' /usr/local/bin/consul

Consul is starting correctly. Thanks.
